  • While the resulting American health care model proved a clever way to ensure that the money would roll in from patients, employers, and government, it contained a flaw that is proving fatal. The flaw is that health care consumers have been removed from par- ticipating in decisions regarding their care. Our approach to health insurance ignores the important role consumers play in controlling costs and enhanc- ing quality. Dr. Gorman found that people who pay for their own care cut utilization by 10% to 30% with no discernable effect on health.

  • Priority-setting approaches in the area of health have slighted SRH concerns. A disease-oriented approach to health priority setting has not recognized the importance of preventing unintended pregnancies. The consequences of these extend beyond the direct individual disability concerns to social participation, familial health and complex empowerment issues. Returns to investments in SRH are, therefore, difficult to assess and often omitted from policy dialogues.

  • The idea to build small cars for the Indian market is almost as old as India’s independence. Already by the late 1950s, the Indian Government established a Commission with the task to look at costs and prices of motor vehicles produced in the country and invited proposals for the production of an ‘economy car’. In response, different manufactures submitted proposals. Tata, for example, submitted a proposal for the license production of a DKW light car.

  • An efficient capital market is one in which security prices adjust rapidly to the arrival of new information and, therefore, the current prices of securities reflect all information about the security. What this means, in simple terms, is that no investor should be able to employ readily available information in order to predict stock price movements quickly enough so as to make a profit through trading shares.

  • Students should check their experiments every day for signs of growth. Care should be employed when examining the sponges under a stereomicroscope since the gemmules may take more than a day to attach firmly to the bottom of the well. Magnification at 30 X or less should be sufficient for the visualization of growth. As the experiments progress, students will be able to detect major growth abnormalities immediately, but should also look for more subtle developmental abnormalities (such as the absence of a well defined water vascular system).

  • If we continue investing steadily in these programs, the Obama administration can realize its goal of funding antiretroviral treatment for more than 4 million people over the next five years; and our AIDS and malaria platforms can expand successfully into other health areas, in partnership with able international alliances like the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. It won’t be easy. Over the past year, the pace of growth in treatment has slowed. Budgets have tightened.

  • Overall, there are marginally more men than women in Europe, with the proportion of women increasing in older age categories.

In all European countries, life expectancy is greater for women than for men, with the largest gap between the sexes in Lithuania (11.7 years) and the smallest in Iceland (3.4) (based on 2006 data).

  • Insurance companies are using social media to increase visibility, enhance familiarity, develop relationships and build trust. Perhaps, presently, the primary advantage of using social media is to generate exposure. Another key use of social media by the insurance industry is to provide customer service in order to build and maintain relationships with consumers (see Appendix D for examples). The insurance industry has built its foundation on networking and building a good reputation.

  • Molecular markers from the transcribed region of the genome can offer potential for various applications in plant genotyping as they reveal polymorphisms that might be directly related to gene function. A novel marker system called Start Codon Targeted Polymorphism (SCoT) was described by Collard & Mackill (2009b), based on the observation that the short conserved regions of plant genes are surrounded by the ATG translation start codon (Sawant et al., 1999). The technique uses single primers designed to anneal to the flanking regions of the ATG initiation codon on both DNA strands.

  • The Directive's main aim is to ensure that the authority giving the primary consent (the 'competent authority') for a particular project makes its decision in the knowledge of any likely significant effects on the environment. The Directive, therefore, sets out a procedure that must be followed for certain types of project before they can be given 'development consent'. This procedure, known as Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), is a means of drawing together, in a systematic way, an assessment of a project's likely significant environmental effects.

  • The availability of crop insurance for a particular crop in a particular region is an administrative decision made by USDA. The decision is made on a crop-by-crop and county-by-county basis, based on farmer demand for coverage and the level of risk associated with the crop in the region, among other factors. In areas where a policy is not available, farmers may request that RMA expand the program to their county. The process usually starts with a pilot program in order for RMA to gain experience and test the program components before it becomes more widely available.

  • The Commission is keen to assume leadership at the international level on this debate and will seek close co-operation from its global partners within the Financial Stability Board and the G20. Audit, alongside supervision and corporate governance, should be a key contributor to financial stability as it provides assurance on the veracity of the financial health of all companies. This assurance should reduce the risks of misstatement, and in doing so, reduce the costs of failure that would otherwise be suffered by the company's stakeholders as well as by the broader society.
